How big is the bottle you bring and the bottle the BV department sells? What are the prices of each? I drive my hubby crazy with this because I always want the details.
Carnival claims the bottle of JW Black they sell is 40 ounces, but it was less.

Most liquor they sell is in 1 liter bottles.

I can buy a 1.75 liter bottle of same for less than what they charge for "40 oz" .

In the duty free shop, I think they sell Black Label for about $28.

I show you my experiences and leave it up to you to decide if it is for you or not.
